Datchet is gearing up for the Midwinter Championship next weekend. The fleet captain, Mervyn Wright, said, "We have 11 boats committed so far and we are hoping for at least 15." Racing is planned to start at 1130, with a briefing in the wet bar at 1030. To keep turnaround tight, they plan to use a 3-2-1 start sequence and breeze permitting, try and get 4-6 races in. There will be one discard. They'll try and get back ashore by 4.30 so there'll be plenty of light to de-rig. There is a low cost package to encourage you to stay through the Sundays of February for the Winter Warm Up and including the Open Meeting for the Mercedes Trophy on March 8-9. Datchet Commodore, Phil Tinsley, will be PRO. Click here to see Phil's outline of the event.
